Tune of the Day: La Oberulm
from “Amusement de Mars”
This fanfare is the fourth movement of Amusement de Mars, a suite for solo instrument (“musette, vielle, flute and oboe” according to the original edition) and continuo by the French Baroque composer Nicolas Chédeville.
The title almost certainly refers to the German town of Ober-Olm, located near the Rhine river 7 km south-west of Mainz.
